To everything, turn, turn, turn

There is a season, and I'm ready for the conference season to be over. It hit me yesterday that I'm worn out, ready for my life to go back to some normal pattern, ready to sleep in the same bed for more than three days at a time.

While it hasn't been the best conference season I've ever had, it has been very fulfilling. I don't feel as close to everyone as I used to, but it is to be understood, as I'm not really a desk worker/counselor anymore. I may work the occaisional shift, but, more often than not, I'm their boss, and they treat me accordingly. There have been some great moments, though, like getting to know Roy (mister_biv) better, Scotty taking my drunk ass for another car ride(somehow I have to figure out how to up the frequency of those. One a summer just isn't enough), meeting mslinds007 (not conference related, but still).

My mind is turning toward fall, thinking about my first apartment, wondering about how one turns on utilities, what it will be like to actually have a kitchen where I live (instead of down the hall, or downstairs!).

To quote the Carpenters, we've only just begun.
